Kenward, Have you tried the sample file? It is /usr/share/lyx/examples/powerdot-example.lyx on the system I'm using this evening. It works perfectly out of the box. This is LyX 1.6.2 running on Kubuntu 9.04, and powerdot is provided by texlive-latex-recommended 2007.dfsg.1-5 in the main ubuntu repository. Debian is known for being rather slow in adopting releases, and while I have not used it myself, I have run into problems with LaTeX versions not working with Powerdot in other distributions.
